Song of the day: Starbuck – "Moonlight Feels Right"

May 3, 2013

An album has just been released that’s called Drink A Toast To Innocence: A Tribute To Lite Rock. It’s a 28-track, 2-CD compilation of very pleasant 70’s AM radio songs covered by a slew of modern power-pop-performing persons.

I like most of the songs that were chosen for the album, but as I looked over the track list I thought about some magnificent mid-’70s light-rock delicacies that weren’t included.

I know that it’d be virtually impossible to satisfy every light-rock lover with songs chosen for this sort of enterprise, but I wouldn’t have minded someone tackling this for the album:

Starbuck – “Moonlight Feels Right (1976)


Or maybe that was considered but all the musicians involved in the project thought: “Nah – too wimpy.”

Tomorrow, I’ll play you another song I wouldn’t have minded appearing on Drink A Toast To Innocence.
